Scarborough Campus Student's Union

SCSU democratically unites, represents, and provides avenues for the diverse 14,000 members of the undergraduate student body of UTSC. We are committed to providing effective advocacy, enriching the university experience, and addressing student needs and interests through the delivery of exemplary cost-saving services.

The SCSU (formerly known as the Scarborough Campus Students’ Council; SCSC) was formed in 1966 and has lead an active role in many victories on campus including the building of the UTSC residences, the creation of a library and the student centre, wi-fi on campus, elevators, introducing the bottled-waterfree campaign, interest-free grace period on OSAP payments and tuition fee billing (the ability to pay tuition fees per semester effective September 2014). These are some of the victories the SCSU has been able to lead because of the commitment of the student membership; students united can never be defeated. SCSU operates year-round through its team of 6 executives, 17 directors, 8 full-time staff, and many part-time staff.

SCSU operates and manages the Student Center, owns the Rex’s Den restaurant, and provides a range of services including, bursaries, discount movie passes, discount TTC Metropasses, fax service, graduation photos, the Health & Dental Plan, lockers, photocopying service, and SCSU prizes. We also organize events such as Orientation, Mosaic, Spring Formal, and Spirit Days.

Services

Being a student can be extremely expensive due to the rising costs of tuition fees. As a result, the SCSU offers cost-saving services to help offset some of these costs such as offering discounted TTC metropasses, health & dental plan, alternative food options, discounted movies, faxing services and many more.
